KIYOSU, Japan—Demand for Toyoda Gosei Co. Ltd.'s weatherstripping products continues to grow, so the firm is giving its Hubei Toyoda Gosei Zheng Ao Rubber and Plastic Sealing Technology Co. Ltd. (TG Zheng Ao) subsidiary the chance to grow right along with it.
TG on July 13 christened a newly expanded manufacturing plant in Hubei, China, doubling the footprint to around 365,000 square feet. The company did not offer specifics about capacity or the investment in the facility.
In June 2021, TG moved the plant operations to a nearby industrial park to allow for expansion construction.
Since its establishment as a joint venture between Toyoda Gosei and Hubei Zhengao Automotive Accessories Co. Ltd., TG Zheng Ao has been serving major players in China's burgeoning automotive space. The company, which became a TG subsidiary in December 2018, supplies Dongfeng Motor Corp. and has become a key part of TG's growth throughout the country.
